In our latest outing, you'll find a very healthy mix of far flung adventure tales from our global correspondents, and plenty of new product coverage as the brands bring their 2016 kit onto the market, as well as the usual reviews, interviews and sublime imagery that we hope you're getting accustomed to.
Here's just a taste of what you can find in issue 6…

“I’ve kited big waves, and I’ve kited big barrels, but never fast waves like this. A local guy told me he drove along the wave at 60 kilometers an hour – and the wave was still faster than his truck. I pumped up my 7 meter Neo and waxed up my 5’8” WAM and set out for the frigid Atlantic once again.”
Patri McLaughlin departs the Hawaiian summer and heads for the mythical Skeleton Coast…
“Paulino told us of the rough west coast and that we might find something there. It was getting late and our chances to score were slim but we thought we would try our luck.

Hannes Burner joins Paulino Pereira and big wave rider Ryan Coote as they chase a Cape Verdian swell.
